Why are men on dating sites so clueless?Page 3 of 6    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6)
This is way too much introspective navel-gazing for my taste but I suppose it's good for a laugh. Might as well clean out the lint while you're down there.

I dunno. Some folks have their act together. Others don't.

Sure, you're going to get great-unwashed-masses commonalities within any given population (single adults, lookin' fer love and/or sex online in North America) and you will start to see trends emerging.

I wonder if fishing is as good a metaphor as panning for a gold nugget.

You pan through all sorts of other materials (clay, sand, dirt, rock) recognizing each simply enough to know that they are not what you are looking for.

Why agonize over what the other not-suited-for-you 's are?

Recognize, note the situation, continue your search pattern.

Every once in awhile you find a glimmer of gold.

Rarer yet, a nugget.

Why concern yourself with anything else other than focusing on your own personal nugget?


-- Fox -- glad you have a pic up finally. Very nice.

Don't lose hope but do consider another location.

Cheers

Nice= over exaggerated compliments,by reading only the profile. Guys that are admitting that they are nice guy in their first reply.

Hmm, my sociological experiment is going better than I had dreamed possible.

The drama, the hostility, the fact that some of you are actually taking this seriously enough to waste entire moments of your day that you'll never get back by being angry.

The anger level of the responses seems to be directly proportional to the amount identification one has to the description in the first post.

Seriously fellow males, if you're angry about this post, tell me to GFY, call me a douche, etc., you're providing excellent data to back up my hypothesis.

Good work!

You're afraid that you're not sure of a love there is no cure for.

(God help me, I knew the answer.)

Oh, BTW...off-topic...

Anyone here think the guy who started this post's avitar's head looks ALOT like the robot head in Duran Duran's 1983-4 song WILD BOYS video?



Um... I think that's Robert DeNiro in "Taxi Driver"?

Do I get a prize??

Personally, I'm wary of men who try to verbally CONVINCE me that they're nice guys. I won't discover a man is a nice guy until I've known him for a while and see how he acts in different situations. Something is amiss when someone you've never met is begging and cajoling a stranger to believe he's a "nice" guy. True nice guys just put themselves out there, and aren't embarrassed to ask for what they want. And they LISTEN.

I'm primarily looking for guys close to my own age (and experience) who share similar interests to mine. I'm often disappointed when men with wildly different interests than mine try to chat me up. I have no idea what to talk about! That's what I thought would be better about internet dating: zeroing in on people who share your interests. Although I'd also like to find someone who I think I'd share some physical chemistry with someday. I've had several not so passionate relationships with men who were "nice", but who were far more physically attracted to me than I was to them. Not going down that road again.

Just food for thought, although I thought the other posts were hilarious. :oD

OTB: Is that my prize??

See where I live? Weird, huh?

I agree with whoever was talking about "nice guys" who verbally try to convince you. Nothing is a bigger turn off to me. Just be yourself! Your niceness (or lack thereof) will be evident. No need to talk yourself up!

I declare this thread bumped. I must do so in order to prolong the thrill.

Oh, and I'm a douche. There, now we're back on topic!

Oh and Susychestnut does indeed win the prize. Whatever it may be.

smitten: Affected by something overwhelming; conscience smitten; awe struck, she was crazy about him. he was infatuated with her.

Does this mean I should stop using big words? :LOL:


I think there are more groups than the two mentioned. I can come up with at least 2 more can you?

It isn't that I needed a definition of the word "smitten", but rather that I was confused by the context in which it was used....

sheesh I need to be more careful who I pick fights with and you've already been smitten by another

Smite: (verb) 1 : to strike sharply or heavily especially with the hand or an implement held in the hand; 2 a : to kill or severely injure by smiting; b : to attack or afflict suddenly and injuriously (past participle--smitten)

It sorta makes sense in context with that particular definition.
